This workshop will hone your ability to recognise and solve problems in your manuscript, and will help you identify and customise practical tools and techniques you can use along the way.
You will learn
- to identify how your own writing fits with the literary fiction template and your publication and career goals
- to deepen your understanding of the qualities that define literary fiction and how it differs from and intersects with mainstream and genre fiction
- to develop and broaden your ability to troubleshoot and problem solve in your draft manuscript
- how to take advantage of the techniques of mainstream and genre authors, while retaining the structural and linguistic freedom that is vital for literary fiction
- to fit out your own writer’s toolkit with custom made tools to manage structure, story and narrative drive in your manuscript.
